What I judged parents on before I had a baby
Childless people always change their tune once the baby arrives.
The most you’ll ever know about parenting is before you have kids. Fact.
You’ll never co-sleep. You’ll never use a dummy. You’ll never use the TV as a babysitter. Your kids will eat all their vegetables. Your kids will never throw a tantrum in the Aisle of Evilness that is the Woolies checkout line.
And then your little bundle of joy arrives and all of that goes straight out the window, along with your sanity and the ability to have an adult conversation.
